Digi Haven DT Card - Kevin's Sketch

It's challenge time once again at Digi Haven, this fortnight we have a sketch challenge for you, and we're sponsored by Beccy's Place.  The DT were very generously given images by Beccy to use for this challenge, please do check out her store, her digis are gorgeous and she has a ton of freebies too.  The sketch was designed by the uber talented and all round nice guy, Kevin, who's a member of the Digi Haven DT, we all really enjoyed using it and we'd love for you to play along too.
 I chose this fabulous image called Homegrown, which was a joy to colour with my Promarkers.  It made me think of the gardening themed papers in my Papermania Home to Nest A4 Ultimate pack as soon as I saw it, the sentiment is from the same pack too.
I made the topper into a pocket so that I could tuck a memory pocket into it, I have had a packet of these seed packet themed pockets in my stash for a wee while now, they came in a goody bag and I've been looking for a use for them.  I thought it would be a nice way to give a gift of money or a voucher.
I've embellished simply with garden twine, making this card suitable for a man.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
